ATLANTApix: Medals of Freedom

Presidential Medals of Freedom
Presidential Medals of Freedom
On August 9, 1999, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter were awarded Presidential Medals of Freedom by President Bill Clinton. This award is the nation's highest civilian honor.

These awards, among numerous others that the Carter's have received, are on display at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum. The Museum is surprisingly large, until you realize just how much Jimmy and Rosalynn have accomplished in their lives—and continue to accomplish.

Coming up at the Carter Presidential Library & Museum is a book signing by former U.S. Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, scheduled for 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 7, 2011.

A few days earlier, on Saturday, the 3rd, a new temporary exhibition will go on display: “Read My Pins: The Madeleine Albright Collection.” The exhibition features more than 200 pins, many of which Secretary Albright wore to communicate messages during her diplomatic tenure.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
